As a follow up to the guide, the Drake University Agricultural Law Center and National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition are co-hosting a webinar on contract agreements. The webinar is open to everyone, and advanced registration is recommended, but not required.

Here are the webinar details:

When: Wednesday, May 31, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EST

Who: Anyone that is interested in contract agriculture

What:  Today, a significant portion of livestock, poultry and other crops are being raised under production contracts. But production contracts can be complicated & confusing. How will a contract affect the future of your farm?

This webinar will help farmers, advocates, and law students understand production and marketing contracts for contract growing: the benefits, the risks, and the legal considerations.

Neil Hamilton of Drake Law School will be the presenter.
